Just finished watching TIGA video on the homepage. I like him: quiet, fast and loves to ride.

Excited to have him come to the USA and race during his offseason. I think he will do very well; have to respect him for coming early and prepping like our guys did going over to Europe to train for the mxon. Seems to have a good attitude and will be good to see one of the top MXGP guys.

This cat has talent. Only reason I would watch this year is because he came over to try again. I think he may have felt like he didn’t leave his best out there last time. Hope he does well.

I think he would of learned a few lessons from last year, so I actually pick him as a dark horse for a win or two

I can’t wait to watch him on Saturday. Even if he has a bad night, I’m just stoked to be able to watch him in person. Been a fan of his since he first started battling with Herlings in MX2.

How can you not like this guy?

His style is amazing.

I can see him on the podium in all 3 races.

Tiga is one of my favorite riders this generation. Super humble and fast as fuck.

Win or lose come saturday, i'll be rooting for him!

|

Mad respect for a GP rider to come over and play in SX. Granted not pure SX, it’s hybrid, but close enough. Wish more GP riders would do it. It’s a chance to gain fans, what’s there to lose?!
Gonna give him a follow Rat Neo! (How we talk in TX)

He was really good a few years ago, maybe tried a little to hard, I hope He has a good weekend , Real fun rider to watch.

Cool guy for sure, but NO way will he get the W in any moto.

|

Takes some balls to take another shot, and his speed is insane. He looked pretty comfortable and smooth on the SX track, so who knows.

|

He's obviously a great racer, but in the video he sure doesn't look all that comfortable. Looks very stiff, and almost timid. Granted the speeds of the video were slowed down but compare his body language to the video of Malcolm and you can just see the lack of comfort.

But once you throw other riders out there, you just never know. There are times that you see a relatively local pro who flows like crazy then gets out to qualify for your local SX and looks like a C class guy, and other times a 'mechanical' looking rider does much better than you expected because he is consistent enough to hit his lines every lap, etc.

Watch the video I posted above. He looks rigid there as well. In one of the best races of his life. Gapping 3rd by a minute. It's his riding style.

he is just unreal on hardpacked mx tracks so vegas will fit him but think he will have problems in the rythms when he will have 20 other riders around him. but who know he deals with pressure pretty good.

|

I’d love to see him go to the us and get a sx and mx title on the 250 and then try get the 450 titles. He’s young enough and imagine being able to say you won every major motorbike championship on the planet.

Best race of the year! Too bad we missed out on more races like this because of injuries.

I hope that next year there will be no injuries from the top riders. Febvre,herlings,cairoli,gajser,prado,coldenhoff,desalle,tonus,seweer.

Mama mia!

This clip from MXGP of Germany a few years ago is maybe the sickest clip I have ever filmed. Gajser is also the most down to earth pro rider I know. He could definitely podium at MEC.

|

He's the reigning GP world champion racing something a little out of his element, and in a complety different nation than any he normally races in. That's ballsy. I like that about him. He can do well in it. He has the talent if he can get dialed in and comfortable enough.

Unfortunately as a two time MXGP champ you would never see him drop down to a 250 class.
Having said that he wouldn't be too far off the pace in the 450 class.

Man , I hope Tim has a great weekend and just has fun. Pretty damn awesome having the reigning MXGP champ here racing this , and just enjoying a different type of racing compared to what he's used too. Again , I hope he has fun , and decides to make this an annual thing.

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

I wish Gasjer had permanently moved over here for SX and MX. His race craft would make him a fan favorite.

|

10/19/2019 3:03 PM

5th in qualifying, not bad for a MX specialist. He has to keep posture and not riding over his head we already saw what happened to Tixier, SX can bite you in the blink of an eye.

Tim's riding awesome!!! One more to go man!

Man he crushed it, turns up on holiday and does that, wow! Imagine an offseason of SX, the kid can ride a bike.

Is there any Euro that came over and has done this well in their second race? What a treat to have him mix it up with the local guys. Bigger fan now.
